Shahid Kapoor's younger brother Ishaan Khattar has been roped in by the acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi for his film Beyond The Clouds.
The music for the film based on relationships and life, will be provided by none other than AR Rahman.
The director, who first teamed up with Rahman for Muhammad: The Messenger of God, said he always wanted to make a film in India.
"Filmmakers like Satyajit Ray , whose work I adore, have represented India's culture, rich heritage and the lives of common people to a global audience. These visions and images have stayed in my mind for years and cajoled me to make a film in India. Finally, I'm in Mumbai with a lovely team to narrate a story woven around the lives of common people," Majidi said in a statement.
Speaking about casting Ishaan, Majidi said, "Ishaan is a wonderful boy. He is extremely talented and I feel, he will have a bright future in the film industry."
Shahid Kapoor took to Instagram to wish his brother Ishaan on his new beginnings.
Beyond The Clouds produced by Zee Studios and Eyecandy Films, will be shot at numerous locations in India including Mumbai and Jaipur.
